Does anyone have this switch?

Its hard to get to the battery area and this looks like its automatic.

Im looking to add an additional blue top for the system Upload

I am no genius at this, but I do not see any switch in the pics you posted. Maybe you are confusing the distribution block with a switch?

I used one. It worked well, but not something I would do again. For my truck, when I added in a second battery, I used a Stinger relay. Super simple battery isolation.

Someone sure did a clean job on your amp install. That whole area looks very tidy!

It would appear that there are no speakers hooked up to the amplifiers. Very clean looking amp install.

No switch yet - thats what I want to add along with the second battery.

The speaker wires go through the panel and out the back you cannot see them but they are behind the battery.

I have been absolutely delighted with mine. It does all the work for you and if you run your main battery down, you know you can always start your boat.

Attached is a picture of the install.

It can be a pain to wire up, and on my new boat, I would have to cut into the factory engine harness to get to the alternator lead, which for a higher power stereo system, is the way you should do it. I don't want to do that, so...

I have a BIC 150 hellroaring switch I'll sell for $50 plus shipping. It works great just not what I need, I'm gonna use a continuous duty relay on my system.

Love it! Won't ever go without one with all the high end stereo equipment and batteries that I have. And if you get it, I suggest getting the remote switch for it too. It allows you to control the isolator/Combiner and it also gives you an indicator of what it's going at a glance on the switch. I highly suggest it and guarantee you won't be disappointed.

The remote switch is just that...a switch, nothing special. No need to purchase theirs if you know how to wire an LED.

A continuous on Stinger type relay is around $50 so Psyclone's offer is pretty darn good. Either way you can not go wrong, but I prefer the stouter terminals of a relay. Then again, I am hard on equipment.
